Finding yourself in winter

There is a privacy about winter which no other season gives you.
In spring, summer and fall people sort of have an open season on each other;
only in the winter can you have longer, quiet stretches
when you can savor belonging to yourself.
— Ruth Stout (1884-1980)

    1. It really spoke to me, Jacqueline! I do think it's good to turn inward for awhile each year. And winter is the perfect time for that.
